The self-penned Mississippi - Tennessee picks up where Lucie Tiger’s award-winning song Gasoline left off. With southern-style rocking guitars, organ and piano that demand attention, plus driving drums, Lucie is getting in touch with her fun side.

It’s a lively take on Lucie’s love of southern gentlemen, being stuck between a rock and a hard place, and the unspoken desire of having a fast set of wheels to get you from one to the other.

Mississippi – Tennessee follows a string of successful singles including those featured on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart. She was the only independent Australian artist to successfully chart on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart with all four singles she sent to USA radio in that time – Found My Home, Do Me Right, Midnight Goodbye and Burn It Down.

The music video, which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown, was directed by Jay Seeney of Blacklist Production House, who also makes his acting debut in the hilarious clip.

Lucie says, “When I wrote the song, I was thinking this is just something funny, like how could anyone really find themselves in this ridiculous situation where they've been casually dating and then basically fall in love with two guys in two different states?! So, when we came to doing the video, I didn't want anyone to think I'm this terrible, two-timing hussy and so I thought let's make a video that's in the same spirit as the song – just super fun, super silly and with screwball comedy vibes.”

She continues, “The two guys were such good sports as well! Jay Seeney, I think he nailed it! He was our 'Tennessee Guy’, and our 'Mississippi Guy' is a friend of mine, Daniel Jackson, who is an actor. Huge props to him for carrying those flowers, they literally weighed about 20kg – there was an entire branch from a banana tree in there with actual bananas on it! The flowers were from a florist called September Studio [who are which] famous for their outrageous bouquets. I knew the one we organised for the video had to be HUGE to really have that impact.”

The music video’s other star is the 1965 Mustang.

“The car is absolutely gorgeous, we hired it from Dream Rides,” Lucie adds. “It's pretty gorgeous and it sounds even better than it looks! I hope everyone reads between the lines and realises that anyone who has a special someone in both Mississippi and Tennessee would need a fast set of wheels to get between them!”

Born and raised in the Sydney region, Lucie grew up listening to 1970s rock and Southern artists like The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, The Rolling Stones etc. during long family road trips. She turned those childhood memories into a career, channelling that classic sound with a fresh feel.

Her music blends truth with hope along with buried treasure in her lyrics for those searching out her inspirations and her songs are coloured with a hefty dose of good old Americana charm and subtle hallmarks of the blues. Her heavy influences include The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as more modern touches of RaeLynn, Jason Isbell and Miranda Lambert.

Her album Alabama Highway debuted at #14 on the ARIA Country Albums chart and The Memphis Tapes debuted at #7 on the AIR Albums Chart.

She is also a winner of the prestigious Tamworth Songwriters Association Award for ‘Best Country Blues Song’ in 2021 and has had multiple nominations for Australian Songwriter Association Awards. Additionally, Lucie has been industry-nominated twice for the Rudy Brandsma Award for Songwriting Excellence by the Australian Songwriting Association.
